Summer Lingerie Solutions & Seasonal Trends

It’s officially summer! June 21st marked the summer solstice, which means it’s time to break out the camisole tops, bandeau dresses and lightweight linen pants. What, though, to wear underneath? Summer dressing brings with it a whole heap of lingerie dilemmas, so we’ve put together some top tips for keeping your cool in the heat.

Help! What can I wear with a bandeau top?

An on-trend choice for the past few summers, bandeau tops are back again this season—and there’s no need to let your bra straps ruin the look. Discover our multiway bras by Felina or Rosme, which feature detachable straps to give you the best of both worlds. Rosme’s seamless contour cup bra features silicone to help keep it in place, while the Vogaje style is available up to a G-cup.

Shop convertible and strapless bras

And underneath a strappy camisole?

A convertible bra works perfectly under a strappy dress or cami too, of course. But why not show off your straps instead? A bra with contrasting bra straps can look great with a camisole: go for vivid colors and pretty details. Gossard’s Glossies collection comes in a variety of bright hues that you’ll want to show off.

Do I really need a t-shirt bra?

You kinda do: there’s nothing worse than a lace bra that’s visible under your t-shirt. Elaborate trims and seams can look lumpy too. Look for a seamless t-shirt bra with smooth, molded cups to give you a clean silhouette under your summer tees and tanks. If you prefer a sheer bra, however, you can add a pair of silicone pads or contour petals underneath to cover your nipples.

Shop molded cup bras

What if I don’t want to wear a bra at all?

Remember those contour petals we just talked about? If you are an A or AA-cup, you can get away with wearing these instead of a bra—they’re ideal for a no-show look under delicate fabrics.

Shop Braza silicone contour petals

Speaking of lightweight fabrics, what about panties?

Planning on floating around in lightweight white linen all summer? Gauzy fabrics and pale colors can present a summer lingerie challenge, but there are plenty of panty styles designed to help. Felina’s Body Luxe invisible hipster panty is a no-show style that’s ideal for summer; or try our Lavinia sheer lace Brazilian panty, or Rosme’s seamless laser cut thong, for something a little skimpier.

Great quality bra

Great bra. Fabulous fit & quality. I have six of these bras now. Sizing runs a bit small.

Comfy. Wish you had more colors. Also wish you had slightly padded t-shirt bras.
